Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Arboretum Mustila will get you outdoors. Get some cultural insight at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Teijo national park (in Pernio) and Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo (in Jarvenpaa). The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, hunt for treasures at Market Square Kauppatori, get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, and steep yourself in history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
